Coming to Conclusions Worksheets
Related ELA Standard: W.4.3.E
Having the ability to sum up your argument, in any arena, is often an arduous task for most writers. An extra element of difficulty is thrown in when you are sharing an experience with your reader. Finding the balance between being objective and helping your reader to a conclusion comes with experience. The goal of a conclusion is to leave your reader with a clear and understandable point that is supported with facts. This is often lost by many writers when they are sharing something that they have been through and have an emotional attachment to. These worksheets help students start the process of writing in this manner.

Tips When Writing Narrative Conclusions
Here are some of the tips to keep in mind when writing narrative conclusions:
Focus on the learning
If your narrative writing is personal, then it is important to end it by reflecting on your personal learnings. You can do so by mentioning all the important things and facts that you learned. Make sure that your conclusion remains relevant to the topic. You can also talk about the actions that can shape the future in a better way.
The story's significance
Another great way to end your narrative writing is by analyzing the significance of the topic. You definitely have written about a topic you are passionate about. So, also think of reasons why people around you will be interested in reading it. Know your ‘why' and mention it at the end. Identify the significance of your topic or story, and let the readers know all the benefits they can get from it.
Conclusions of all narrative writings should contain emotions. Narrative writings are personal reflections. This is the reason why they create an instant bond with the reader. The conclusion is the part where the reader gets to know the entire point of the story. So, make sure to use the right emotions at the end. A reader will never forget an extremely emotional ending. In fact, it can change their entire perspective on the story. Use the emotions wisely and know where you want to hit the audience.
Mention the Moral
As narrative writing is a personal reflection, it often gives some sort of moral. The conclusion is the best place to mention moral of the story. This is because the story is ending and the readers get to know the entire perspective the author wanted to create. The conclusion is also the part where readers get emotional. So, they are more likely to remember the moral.
